I have a Sprint PPC 6700 that I would love to migrate to my current IDEN Boost account. I have been told the numbers were good they could put it on, but during the process they asked me to put in some numbers and when I did, it did not give the results they expected. I was told to buy a boost phone and call back. What were the numbers for as I did not ask. Can this phone be used on Boost?
I'd say 60% of the time if you say you want to do a "migration"... they think you mean from Sprint to Boost, because that's not actually a port... it's an account migration. It's the same method they use to go from Nextel to Sprint, or Nextel to Boost, or Boost IDEN to Boost CDMA.
It's best to just say "migrate from IDEN to CDMA".
There isn't anything to do to the phone.. just make sure it has the original/stock Sprint ROM, and has a clean ESN.
Odds are you had a rep who knew it was a Sprint phone and didn't want you to use it so they gave you the wrong info. Also, don't tell them it isn't working... call back and see if you get different info from another rep.
OKAY! I hit the jackpot! found a gal who hooked the phone up! A sprint PPC-6700 code to get in to it is ##3282# The the device asked for a pin to enter. #333470 got me to the edit page. I then went to advanced tab and it took me to where I could edit alot of stuff. she had me change my phone number to some odd number and I now have only phone!
what do I need to do to get MMS and internet. it tells me I have data error code 76 registration failure, when I attempt to get on the internet
your correct! I read this online and understood the i1 service was a joke! So went with the CDMA Boost Blackberry 8530 instead. It's 60.00 a month instead of the 50.00 ) I also have a 8350i (iden) that is bricked I think. The radio will not come back to life no matter what. Master reset, reload the software, radio reset, nothing seems to get the radio back on. I have read in other fourms where those are famous for a hardware issure. This is why I just shelled out the cash ! I got faster speeds using the CDMA sprint network instead of the IDEN/Nextel. Do I need to be corrected on any of this? Please school me if I am living a fantacy.
